The Crew 2 Demolition Derby Free Update Now Live, Includes Reworked Damage Model And PvP

Hit and run

52

Demolition Derby, the second new free update/expansion to open world racer The Crew 2, is now live.

The update brings in a new discipline, Demolition Derby. Five new cars in this discipline has been added and are totally destructible.

The update also finally adds PvP, something the fans have been asking since launch. In addition, the game’s damage and collision model has been updated. At launch, you usually get respawned immediately once a crash occurred with not much visual damage. Now, vehicles get more visually dinged like the previous game for crashing.

Also, wall-riding and wall-bouncing has been addressed. Cars will not gain an advantage for using the wall to turn rather than properly brake or drift around corners. The developers are also committing to further work on this issue in the future.

The update also changes the illumination system, in other words improving the lighting effects. Full patch notes can be found here.

Alongside the five Demolition Derby cars are 14 new vehicles. This includes the Red Bull RB14, the 2018 F1 car in both its official and digital camo blue (Disruption Edition) livery.
